Having concluded their 2017 tour in September, Bon Jovi may be taking a break from the stage but it’s looking very likely that dates for their next live shows will be announced soon. With their recent and long-awaited Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction in the bag, the band are set to return. During fan meet-and-greets at their final “This House Is Not for Sale” tour in September, it was revealed that their European tour is scheduled to start in May 2018. If that news already has you mouth-wide open excited, get yourself over to Next Concert. If you still need some convincing, let us take you through what we know.
Following the release of their thirteenth album, “This House Is Not for Sale”, Bon Jovi embarked on a 35-date tour. With no dates in Europe or the UK, thousands of fans on this side of the world missed out this year. However, there may be hope yet. Fans talking part in a Bon Jovi meet-and-greet prior to the band’s final concert of their tour this year in Sao Paulo on 23rd September, it was revealed that dates for their European tour are scheduled for May 2018.
The last time Bon Jovi played in the UK was in October 2016 for the live recording of their most recent album at the London Palladium. In front of an intimate 2,000-person audience, the band treated fans to “This House Is Not for Sale” in its entirety. After a 3 year hiatus, Bon Jovi returned on form and in true style. The only trouble for fans in the UK was the exorbitant ticket prices. For their London Palladium gig alone, single tickets were being sold for up to £1,200.
The band also played a historic 12 night run at London’s O2 Arena as part of their 2010 “The Circle Tour”. Including so many UK dates in their schedule, if they are to announce new dates soon, it’s very likely that they will return to replicate the same success.
Just to remind you, if you had forgotten how epic a tour it was, “The Circle Tour” featured:
- 85 concerts in total across 5 continents
- 15 dates in Europe, including 12 in London
- Saturated primary ticket platforms (infinite online queues, websites crashing…)
- Tickets resold for up to £450 on the black market
- And hundreds and thousands of disappointed fans who missed out…
Bon Jovi ticket prices for this tour range from $33-$549!
For $549 you might be able to buy that house that's not for sale! #THINFS
